Statesville Fire Chief Andy Weatherman has named Captain Kyle Bell as the new assistant fire chief, effective January 10. Bell’s major responsibility will be to serve as the department’s training/safety officer. An Iredell County native, Bell has been with the department for more than 15 years. “Kyle has done an outstanding job with the various tasks he has been responsible for throughout his career,” Weatherman said. “He has proven himself to be an exceptional trainer and leader, and I know he will do a great job at working with our firefighters and strengthening our department.” Weatherman explained that the SFD has been without a dedicated training officer for a number of years and was pleased when the position was approved in the last budget.
